Epic Games have announced players will receive the Arcana Glider in the coming days as compensation for the Unvaulting event issues.

Epic Games held the first in-game live Fortnite event of Season 8 today called the “Unvaulting”. During the event, players were able to pickaxe which vaulted item they’d like to bring back into the game.

Once the voting was over, with the majority of players voting to bring back the Drum Gun, players were transported back onto the map to witness the volcano begin to erupt. Volcanic rocks were shot out from the volcano, with the first rock destroying Retail Row, the second cracking the iceberg at Polar Peak, and the final set of Volcanic Rocks destroying Tilted Towers. If you’d like to see what Tilted Towers, Retail Row and Polar Peak look like now, check out our article here.

The event had major issues with a large number of players not being able to participate in the event. Epic tweeted out an apology to those players earlier as seen below.

Epic have now decided to compensate players who missed with the event. Anyone who was in the Unvaulting playlist will be granted the Arcana Glider for free in the coming days. Players who already purchased the Arcana Glider previous in the Item Shop will have their V-Bucks refunded.

Players will also be able to see the replay files of the event within the client.

Did you get to witness the event? If so, what did you think about it?

I LOVED the event! My theory is that the crack in the iceberg is going to expand until eventually the whole thing breaks down. But the event was LIT.

FortniteInsider is really ahead of its time in presenting Fortnite news! Its still May 4, 2019 where I am at and I was wondering what happened to the Arcana Glider because I saw it in the shop and wanted to purchase it but it disappeared the same day it came out… then I searched online to see what happen and saw this good news! thanks!

We’re in the UK, so we use the date the shop resets :p but as soon as we saw Fortnite’s tweet, we did an article on the Arcana Glider.

That’s bullshit. So for not being able to witness the event all I get is a fucking glider?! I streamed for 3 hours only for it to not fucking work. Everytime I stream the events none of them have ever worked so for all that shit i get a glider. Fuck you epic.

Unsubscribed on your chanel, joke.

no duhhh. That event had no bugs in it. Everybody who was on fortnite got to see it. This event had bugs and people couldnt get in match to witness it. Plus why would they give you a reward for watching an event if there arent any problems with it. The reward is just a compensation for the bugs during the event

I did not get to witness the event in my match. I play on Xbox One in North Eastern America just to give it some context. At first it was great, the countdown neared completion, everyone had stopped killing each other and there was a huge dance party underway on top of the “vault.” However, when the timer reached zero, nothing happened. Everyone held their breath as the countdown and storm clock would randomly appear and disappear again. Then panic set in as the players began to build up looking for any sign of change. Finally, one by one, the… Read more »

I’m glad I stayed up late. Because yesterday was Saturday. I didn’t know about the event. I played the live event unvaulting at 3am. I witnessed the event it was awesome! Especially the volcano erupting! And I said to myself it was beautiful! Haha! This is my first live event. I missed the marshmello concert cuz I didn’t when was it gonna happen. :3

You’ll only receive the free Arcana glider if you were in the unvaulted playlist when the event took place.

So I wasn’t on for the event at all but I bought the arcana glider. Does this mean they’re gonna give me my vbucks back and refund the glider?? Wtf so just because I couldn’t attend the event means I dont get this glider anymore??

Yousef Saifi

It seems that way. You’ll only be refunded or given the glider if you were in the Unvaulted LTM.

No, sadly you had to be there. If you didn’t show up at all you don’t get the glider.

This live event was EPIC! At first, when I joined the game crashed so I quickly joined in but I missed the voting. I saw the destruction of Tilted Towers (RIP) and Retail Row. This is my first live event because all the other live events I was busy yet I REALLY wanted to see them.

Daniel Ager

This is not compensation, everyone who played the game mode gets a glider even those who got to participate in the event. Might as well not give anything, because that’s how it feels, wasn’t just yesterday its this whole event, the digging, the runes and the main event, 5 weeks spent on developing this story for nothing

nate
Guest

Well, it would be unfair to only give the glider to those who glitched. A reward only based on luck sucks and is a reward for those who cared anough to show up. Stop complaining. They could have done nothing you know.

Edhjk

If you bought the glider and didn’t see the event will you get the glider taken away from you?

nate
Guest

No. You keep the glider and get the vbux in return.

So from my understanding, the only way you could go and see the event (from my personal experience) is that you PHYSICALLY needed to go inside the vault when it opened. Thats why maybe some of you couldnt see it. Maybe idk, its still epics fault for that, but yeah

Tyler

If you didn’t go inside it transported you in it after a minute or less

I Wasnt On For The Event But I Was Seeing It Live On YouTube I Could Have Just Played The Event ; I Hope Epic Games Gives Compensation To The People Who Missed It Also , I Will Pray , Please Pray that everyone gets the glider or I will be sad Compensation should be for those who didn’t get to play not the people who played

Tyler
Guest
Tyler

It’s not that hard to turn on the game and watch your tv so no you don’t need prayers you need to get over it cause it’s a virtual item in a video game, go pray for people who actually need it

CaptinHelp

Some people couldn’t see the event because it’s really early in the morning so this compensation would be better than a revote.

nate

If you not at the event ingame you will not get the glider. Sadly for you, watching the event on youtube does not count. Ingame or nothing.
